In Gnus, when sending a GnuPG-signed message the signing operation is
executed twice if the message has gcc field for storing local copy. It
seems that the background "gpg --detach-sign" process is executed once
for the outgoing message and once for the local copy (gcc).

It's a small annoyance (and first a surprise) when using external
OpenPGP smartcard for the secret-key operation. My Yubikey smartcard has
to be touched before secret key operation is allowed. Some other
smartcards require pin code on physical machine.

Would a single sign operation suffice in Gnus? After all, it's just two
copies of the same message?
